* LicensedGame: It's not immediately obvious, but the ''Ready 2 Rumble'' series as a whole is actually licensed, since Michael Buffer owns the trademark to the series and the catchphrase that inspired its title.

* OlderThanTheyLook: "Big" Willy Johnson looks roughly middle-aged, but is actually ''108 years old'' (or so the Nintendo 64 version says; the Dreamcast and Playstation versions give him an age of 38).

* PutOnABus: Tank Thrasher, Faz Motar, Jimmy Blood, Gino Stiletto, Kemo Claw, Nat Daddy and Damien Black disappear without explanation between games; although it seems Claw and Stiletto had simply retired for good, considering their roles as mentors.

** This was [[RetCon retconned]] in ''Round 2'', as his age is billed as 41 in that game. His age in the first game was probably a joke on the fact that his boxing style is that from early 20th century.

** Gino Stiletto is a parody of {{Franchise/Rocky}}. They even share the same hometown (Philadelphia, PA).

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Both Michael Jackson and Shaquille O'Neal are aware they're in a video game. However, several of Shaq's post-match quips have him [[NoFourthWall completely shattering the fourth wall like he does backboards]], while Jackson only had just one throwaway line: %%NO COMMENTO

** ShownTheirWork: In real life boxing, leaving the ring for any reason is an automatic DQ. Midway took this rule and turned it into an automatic knockout if you hit your opponent with a full Rumble meter.

* RoarBeforeBeating: Adding nicely to his Maori New Zealander heritage and reputation as a ScreamingWarrior, one of Jimmy Blood's win-poses in the original game involves him beating his chest repeatedly in this fashion, before yelling angrily.
